MBA Studies, Fudan Univ.

Study Abroad Program Overview

Rated by Forbes Magazine as one of the top MBA programs in China,  study at Fudan University's MBA program offers unique perspectives on business within China and between China and the world. 
UC students sit alongside local and international students and engage in coursework distinct from, yet complementary to, study at their home UC campus. 
Augment your coursework with insight into the activity of Shanghai, as you witness the rapidly changing environment of what many term China's key financial hub with the global business and world markets.  Return to California enriched and invigorated by what you have learned, yet still connected to those whom you met during the term abroad. 
Students attend classes with international and/or host country students.

Participation in UCEAP is a great value! The cost of studying abroad on UCEAP programs is typically less than that of non-UC study abroad programs. The dollar figures listed in the chart below represent an estimate of: 1) the UCEAP fees for the current year, and 2) the additional amount needed to cover your living expenses in this location. Estimates for personal travel, entertainment and Non-Resident (out of state) Fees are not included.
Keep in mind that on UCEAP you take your financial aid with you. The amount of your financial aid package will take into account the total estimated costs of this experience. One advantage of selecting UCEAP for study abroad is that we facilitate the process by working with your UC Financial Aid Office (FAO), informing them of your UCEAP participation and providing them with your UCEAP budget. Just like your UC Campus billing office, we receive your financial aid and scholarships from your FAO, apply it to cover the UCEAP program fees, and disburse any remaining aid on a set schedule.
